The number of diagnosed cases of primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDs) - a group of inborn disorders of the immune system - is growing rapidly, but misdiagnosis or late diagnosis still occurs in a significant number of patients, with serious consequences. This is the second edition of a practical reference textbook on PIDs that has been widely welcomed by scientists and clinicians from around the world. The new edition has been extensively revised to reflect advances in knowledge and includes various PIDs not previously covered. For each disease, information is provided on definition, etiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management. This book will represent an ideal resource for specialists when engaging in diagnosis, clinical decision-making, and treatment planning. It will also prove invaluable for doctors in training and other physicians and nurses who wish to learn more about PIDs.

"The purpose is to provide an up-to-date, comprehensive resource for physicians and nurses who have an interest in learning more about immunodeficiencies. ... This book's approach is well organized, up to date, and easy to follow. ... I highly recommend this book as a current and comprehensive resource, which also has great clinical relevance for medical students, residents and fellows, and general providers, as well as subspecialists including immunologists." (Joseph R. Hageman, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2017)"This updated text reviews in detail in 10 chapters the recent advances in this field. Clearly written, the authors review the clinical history, genetic diagnosis of the different entities and their management. For all pediatricians, geneticists and immunologists."
